Kawhe Kōrero Maioha

About Kawhe Kōrero Māori

Kua roa koe e ako ana i te reo Māori? Kua oti katoa rānei i a koe ngā akoranga reo Māori i Te Wānanga o Aotearoa? Tēnā haramai ki te Whare Whakaari o Te Pou ki te wānanga, ki te kata, ki te inu kawhe, tī rānei.


Haramai kia tangatanga anō tō arero māori. E ea ai te kōrero a Te Wharehuia, kia whakahokia te mata o te pene ki te mata o te arero.


Waru wiki katoa te roa o ngā wānanga, kotahi hāora i te wiki, hei ngā Tūrei. Ko ēnei wānanga mō te hunga e mārama ana ki te reo Māori.

About Maioha

“Ki te hiki taku waewae i tēnei whenua, ka moana i muri i a au, toe mai he pūrekireki wīwī, ka puta ka ora, ka puta ka ora!” He patupaiarehe nō Pirongia maunga, he whakatinanatanga o Te Hononga Mareikura o Tainui me Takitimu waka. Ko Maioha Allen ahau. I grew up in Hamilton and Christchurch fortunate enough to have been raised in a family full of artists, mostly performing artists within the kapa haka realm. My background is in Education and Te Reo Māori. 2018 gave me the opportunity to be in Flowing Waters by Witi Ihimaera, which then led me to Te Pou Theatre in 2020, even more lucky to stay on as a Kaiwhakahaere Whakaari under the wing of Amber Curreen.

Intimacy Coordination is about cultivating a safe and professional environment for the crafting of intimate content on screen and stage. This workshop will provide participants with valuable tools and language that will add to your kete & professional practice.

Nau mai ki Āperira Waiata Sessions! This an opportunity to come together, whakawhanuanga and just sing. Each session, the group learn a new waiata and hokimahara to previous ones. These are relaxed, drop-in style sessions so nau mai, haere mai!

Bringing back our popular Te Pou Awe acting workshops for 2024, we are inviting whānau Māori of the industry to come along and have a play with some acting. Facilitated by Tainui Tukiwaho, covering the many facets of acting and what makes Māori Theatre.
